This here is Ozu East Kitchen, Atwater Village’s newest nighttime dining option. The long-gestating pan-Asian spot is now open on Glendale Boulevard, working a variety of bowls and sides — plus beer and wine — for dinner.

Following a long build-out of the former Atwater Village Farm space by first-time restaurateur Paul Yi, the space has now been transformed into a chic urban enclave for bowl of ramen, fried tofu, and plates of musubi. The dining area is stark and white, with yellow accents and dark wood touches throughout. Seating is exceedingly casual, as backless blocks act as benches and stools for the dozen or so tables inside.

Bent on providing a high-quality, affordable experience, Ozu East Kitchen will marry mostly Korean and Japanese flavors in a variety of ways. There’s also an extensive beer and wine list, with options for pitchers of Asahi, and wines by the bottle, carafe, or glass. The full menu is below.

Ozu East is now open for dinner service, from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. weekdays, and 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays (closed Mondays).
